In Gatsby’s eyes the city streets become trees, transformed into a green world by means of imagination and intense feeling:
“he could climb to it, if he climbed alone, and once there he could suck on the pap of life, gulp down the incomparable milk of wonder.’ (p96)
The image of the nurturing breast is important: it is echoed in the ‘fresh green breast of the new world’, but in-between there is the mutilated breast of Myrtle Wilson. Through metaphor, Fitzgerald contrasts a visionary reality with a brutal, material reality.
